Japanese Ginger Salad Dressing
Ginger is one of those good for just about everything kind of spices. How can you go wrong with minced ginger as a big part of this salad? Okay, maybe try the Lite Soy Sauce instead to reduce the sodium levels. Beyond that, we’ve got garlic, ginger, mustard, olive oil, lemon juice…what’s not to like in this one? You’ve got to try it!

Makes 12 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon prepared Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Powdered black pepper to taste

Directions:

In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, mustard, honey and pepper. Once these are thoroughly combined, add the oil in a steady stream, whisking constantly. When all of the oil is incorporated into the dressing, pour into a glass jar and chill until serving.
